Lithograph Question - Newbie

My husband's father and uncle were lithographers, until it went out of practice. His dad died in the early 70's and has left us the only Christmas image of the family. It has 3 sheets about 36" x 24", they are sepia tone base transparent with blue, yellow or red image. What do I do with these? What is the best method to store these so they don't get ruined? And how do I find someone to repoduce it for me.

As a general rule of thumb, you'll want to find an archival quality box (acid free, lignin free, and constructed without adhesive) and store the sheets flat. Here are a couple of archival supply companies: and

But I'm not sure what exactly you have. Can you explain these sheets a little more? Are you talking about prints, or materials used to create prints?
